Cafe Grumpy ("Girls")( Jessica Miglio / HBO )
Lena Dunham and her cohorts on HBO's "Girls" often discuss their plight of being a twentysomething at New York's Cafe Grumpy. Alex Karpovsky's character works there as a jilted-but-lovable barista, often commenting on the patrons. The cafe, itself, sits snugly in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighborhood.
